Gladys Zander was born February 22, 1923, to Robert and Ida (Jauss) Zander in Stark County, ND. She was raised on a farm south of Dickinson and graduated from Model High in 1941. On September 21, 1943, Gladys married Peter Kolling in El Paso, TX. She was a stay at home mother, raising her family.

Gladys was a member of the St. John Lutheran Church and a member of St. John Ladies Circle. She enjoyed sewing, quilting, crocheting, reading, and especially cooking for her family. She was famous for her sweet rolls, kolaches and Easter bread. She especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Family was always very important to mom and we will miss her, but will hold her in our hearts.

I just wanted to give a HUGE shout out to Stevenson Funeral Home, out here in Dickinson. Last October, they did a wonderful job with the cremation and presentation of our baby boy Forrest.
With the passing of our latest boy, Leo, we didn’t get the option to cremate him, either bury him out here or leave him in the lab until we decided where to bury him. So I contacted Stevenson Funeral Home, who so generously offered to cremate him for us so he could come home and be with his brother. AND they’re only charging us a small fee of $10 for the whole process including his urn.
I was very nervous going in, with all this abortion talk, I was scared I would get laughed at for wanting to cremate a “fetus”. But to us, he is our son, no matter how big or small.
My heart is full knowing Leo can come home finally… I left in a puddle of grateful tears.❤

If you ever end up in such a tragedy as the death of a loved one, I highly recommend Stevenson Funeral Home.. They’re some of the nicest, most generous people I’ve met out here.
